I just got a 79 luv and am thinking about putting in a Diesel engine. my understanding is that the 81-82 Diesel engines won't fit. are there other models that I can put in?

Search the forum for pee_roy. He swapped a c223 into a 77. This was about 10 years ago.

The '81-'82 diesel engine isn't a bolt-in swap, but it's not a difficult one.

Didn't Eric Q do one as well?

It will work. The engine and transmission just bolts in with no mods to chassis. I put in a 86 Trooper Turbo diesel with 3 speed auto burning veggie oil. Custom side pipe exhaust. Filet open the factory luv wiring harness and diesel harness. Removed from diesel harness what I needed to operate glow system and charging system. Seemed it all into factory harness for a factory finished look. Was a lot of fun. Hope this helps
